The Vampire Bat (1933)




The Vampire Bat takes a different route from most other vampire films of its day and there is as much science in the story as their is supertition. In this film though the science is no bad thing because where there is science there is usually a scientist and scientists often need an assitant. In this film the assistant, Ruth Bertin, is played by the lovely Fay Wray who is also the love interest of the local police chief, Karl Brettschneider and when Karl's hands are not full with his investigtion his arms are filled with Ruth. Busy man! You can find out more about The Vampire Bat at A Passion For Horror.

It has Dwight Frye, Lionel Atwill, and Fay Wray, so you can't miss. Don't expect high production values. This is a B-film, but a good little creepy one with fun performances.

A spooky old European village gripped by fear. Mysterious murders with the victims drained of blood. Dwight Frye as the bat loving village weirdo. If all this wasn't enough, add a solid cast that consists of Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray and Melvin Douglas. This is a vampire movie, but not the kind you think. Discovering what sort of evil ghoul is at work is half the fun in watching this atmospheric little thriller. A minor distraction is the overuse of comic relief supplied by Maude Eburne. Nevertheless "The Vampire Bat" is a horror quickie that honestly earns its four stars.

Don't expect to be scared out of your pants as the films of this era are more moody and spooky. Having said this you need to see this one if only to see the incredible beauty Fay Wray. I give it 4 stars just because Ms Wray is in it.....also good entertainment for any stormy night gathered around the fireplace or whatever.
